Every year, we editors at SmarterTravel share our favorite trips taken during the previous 12 months so you can learn a little bit about the people behind the words. But let's face it: The economy put a hold on many people's travel plans this year, including ours. So we've decided to shake things up a bit and look to the future.
Each editor spent some time thinking about his or her wildest travel dreams, and created a personal list of the most significant items. Though it is typically called a bucket list, because it's supposed to be filled with the things you want to do before you "kick the bucket," we prefer calling it a traveling to-do list. And since we are a bunch of people who love this great big world of ours, we have come up with a lot to do.
And after reading our to-do lists, we'd love for you to share yours. What do you most want to do in your travels? After all, now is the perfect time to start dreaming.
